Thumbs up to you or whoever!

I've often wonder what happened to DB pumps he had in a museum. Did they stay there or were they removed and sold off. No harm no foul either way ,but I always hoped they could have remained.

Lets hope the museum leaves the pumps as is with only a good cleaning and does not restore them

Lets hope the museum has enough money to give these pumps a nice restoration.

A little 'elbow grease' does wonders.

I believe they are cleaning them only. I would love to have them being they are local but they are in good hands.

Those would look great just cleaned up. What a great piece of local history. And what a generous donation.
